This chapter overviews an objective that aim to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the structural characteristics of ships that once actively voyaged off the coasts of China, Korea, and Japan and those vessels that crossed the waters between these nations. It outlines literature review and available data, including iconographical and historical resources as well as archaeological resources. The extensive approaches with a focus on technological hybridization underlying innovations in shipbuilding in East Asia is emphasized beyond the explanation of the sole shipbuilding history in each country above. Drawing the hybridity in the historical development of ship construction methods, it describes the formation and distinctive growth of three regional basis shipbuilding traditions relevant to individual seas.

Keywords:   seafaring, philosophy of shipbuilding, technological innovation, hybridity, Yellow Sea, East China Sea, South China Sea
